Donald Trump Explains Health Care

Here’s what Donald Trump had to say about Obama Care.

Let me get this straight . . . …

We’re going to be “gifted” with a health care Plan we are forced to purchase and fined if we don’t,

Which purportedly covers at least ten million more people,

without adding a single new doctor,

but provides for 16,000 new IRS agents,

written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn’t understand it,

passed by a Congress that didn’t read it but exempted themselves from it,

and signed by a President who smokes,

... with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn’t pay his taxes,

for which we’ll be taxed for four years before any benefits take effect,

by a government which has already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare,

all to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese,

and financed by a country that’s broke!!!!!

What the hell could possibly go wrong

Joe, you’ve got a point there. You’ve surely got a point. Too bad we couldn’t sneak old Shallow Water Murphy into the Congress to give ‘em all a lecture on Murphy’s Law. ;-|

Look at the postal service. Anytime the government takes something over it fails.

I’m surprised he didn’t go all-in with ‘death panels’ and ‘socialized medicine’. What a piker.

There is something truly Orwellian in the comatose state of American political conciseness. The Trump’s remarks of course are about individual mandate, which was a Republican idea to begin with, as anyone with attention span in access of 15 minutes clearly remembers.

In the early 90s conservatives in opposition to Clinton’s employer mandate pushed for an individual mandate. The idea was simple and well argued: an individual mandate was a free-market solution that would make people take responsibility for themselves and stop being freeloaders. Constitutionality of the issue was never questioned. Keep in mind that EMTALA passed in 1986 and signed by Reagan required hospitals to provide emergency care to anyone regardless of ability to pay, effectively transferring losses onto the paying customers. Fast forward 25 years and the patriots are up in arms outraged with the government infringing upon freeloader’s right to get free stuff. How dare it!

Prominent individuals who have supported individual healthcare mandate included George H. W. Bush, Newt Gingrich, and of course Mitt Romney, who as recently as in 2009 publicly urged Obama to use it at the national level to control healthcare cost citing its success in doing so in Massachusetts. But forget the politicians. The idea had traction among intellectually honest people as well (in fact it emanated from them). Those included scholars of conservative think tanks such as American Enterprise Institute and Heritage Foundation and of course the icon of laissez-faire economics Milton Friedman himself, who in a Wall Street Journal article called for the “requirement that every U.S. family unit have a major medical insurance policy.” Written in complete sentences and longer than an average bumper sticker I’m pretty sure that one went below the radars of the general public.

So, there. Enjoy Trump’s drivel and the world’s highest costs of healthcare administration. I’m sure the thought that those costs are privately operated is comforting.

Have a nice day.

The individual mandate was a bad idea then and its a bad idea now. If the government truely wanted to provide healthcare to those that had no insurance they could have really beefed up the number of lost cost clinics providing care (you know health care not insurance because they are different). There is a severe lack of providers now, with the clinics they could have encouraged bright young minds to get into medicine by offereing forgivness on loans for time spent in clinic.

People also needed to change their mindset, insurance is not so you dont have to pay $20 for a perscription although most people treat it that way. Insurance is for paying for the half a million bill for cancer treatment. This mechanism already existed in the high deductable insurance plan, these plans are very affordable because they dont pay for things like medicine for the sniffles.

Being in position to see how the military treats healthcare is rather interesting, you have people that go to the doc to get a perscription so they dont have to pay $5 for over the counter allergy medicine. I have a feeling this is what will happen in our future. Unfortunately Americans would rather spend $1000 on rims for their car than $50 for a checkup visit with their doctor.

While EMTALA was the right thing to do it brought out the worst in people. In recent years stories about how insurance companies wouldnt pay for certian procedures for some poor dying little kid came out in the media, this same thing is only going to hapen more.
